stock gear ratio for 1976

The gear ratio seems to be quite low. I didn't take it apart yet, but on jack stands, it seems to be in the low 2's.

It was a non scientific approach with me turning the wheel and counting the spins on the driveshaft, but it was in the low end of the 2 range. Can this be possible?

What was the lowest rear end gears they put in a 1976 CJ-7. It now has 32x11.5x15 tires on it and when I get it running in 2nd and 3rd gear it seems to be dragging butt quite a bit.

2.73 was the most common stock ratio and the lowest I believe.

I have done some research and that is what it appears to be. I will check the housing tommorrow and see what is stamped on it. This appears to be a stock CJ7 from all aco-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=s.

I think the low ratio combined with the stuck brakes is what is giving this thing crappy performance. Oh yeah, that and the fact I don't have the vacuum hooked up properly.
